New! Make It Market Mini Kit: Sunshine & Rainbows!

Our Make It Market Mini Kits are designed for those who love the idea of Betsy Veldman's popular kits, but are a bit more budget conscious.  As another perk, these new kits will NOT be limited edition, they will be a regular item carried in our store.  These will be released throughout the year randomly, not on a set schedule, so it will be a surprise each month as to whether or not there will be a new one to collect! Now a little bit more of the Make It Market Mini Kit being released this month, Sunshine & Rainbows!


Send a whole lot of sunshine with this mini kit, which includes everything you need to make a rainbow of fun and cheery cards.  Stencil a multi-colored rainbow onto one of the pre-printed papers, or make your own sunshine with the sun ray/heart stencil.  The kit includes some fun word dies that can be combined with the sentiments in the stamp set to create cards that are sure to spread a bit of cheer for any occasion.  Perch a bird on top of the rainbow, or swing from the clouds…the sky’s the limit with this colorful mini kit!

Sunshine & Rainbows Kit includes:

  • Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set + label
  • Sunshine & Rainbows die collection
  • Sunshine & Rainbows paper collection (14 A2 sheets)
  • Sunshine & Rainbows stencil collection (set of 3)
  • Iridescent & Clear Sequin Mix (4mm & 5mm)

The Sunshine & Rainbows Kit will be available for purchase on May 15th!

Check out this video Betsy put together showcasing how many of the items in the kit work together!


Here is a closer look at each of the individual items in this kit!


The mini stamp set included with this kit provides you with all kinds of great little accessory images to go along with the large rainbows you can create with the stencils or the XL Rainbow die (sold separately). Not to mention it also has all of the fun companion sentiments to go with the die-cut words included in the kit.

  • bird, 5/8” 
  • swing, 1-1/4” wide and 2” high
  • assembled flower cluster, 3/4” wide and 1” high
  • music note flourish, 1-1/4” wide and 1/2” high
  • “sending” sentiment, 1” wide and 1/4” high


There are dies to coordinate with many of the images from the stamp set. And look at the font on those fabulous word dies! There is even a separate letter "s" so you can make "rainbow" plural when necessary! Betsy thinks of everything. Many of the dies also coordinate with images found on the papers.  Betsy included outlines on the sheets so you can easily place the dies on top and run through your die-cutting machine for perfect cuts every time.


To go along with her stamp set and dies, Betsy has designed a paper collection that draws from the images found on the stencils.  You can use the stencils to add color to the areas left white on the sheets. Some of the papers even feature small dots that note where you can place sequins if desired, getting a nice random look without the work! The beautifully blended ombré effects and the color schemes are wonderful!  The Sunshine & Rainbows paper collection contains 14 (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") sheets, 1 sheet each of 14 designs and it is printed on our signature white linen paper.  

Coordinates with the following colors- Raspberry Fizz, Bright Buttercup, Amethyst Allure, Aqua Mist, Green Parakeet, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold.Raspberry Fizz, Bright Buttercup, Amethyst Allure, Aqua Mist, Green Parakeet, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold.



The stencils included definitely make this kit worthwhile! Two of them coordinate to form a large rainbow and clouds that will fill an A2 card front. The other makes a sunburn pattern that also fits an A2 card front. Just think of all the techniques you can do with these simple but versatile tools!


This kit also includes a small mix of clear and iridescent sequins, 4mm and 5mm. These are perfect for this kit because they look fantastic with all those bright rainbow colors!
